The 2023 Summer Series is now concluded! Congratulations to all our season finishers! Particular congratulations go to our series winners Lou Ella Cole and Elliot Collins. Full results of the series can be seen here.
+ The Summer Series is designed as a more accessible, more local, shorter-term, shorter-distance, lower-cost version of the Championship, held partly on Summer evenings, from late April to the end of August.
+ Aside from those seeking to win silverware/glassware for a Top Three finish in this contest (separate contests for M and F, but no age category prizes), there is a finisher medal for those that ‘complete’ the annual series.
+ To receive a Summer Series (SS) medal, you need to complete 6 out of 8 nominated SS races (as per the list below).
+ Full rules, scoring etc appear at 4 here.
+ Each year, the Series seeks to avoid (too many) clashes with the summer holiday season, and, with its 6-from-8 approach and the option of the time trial at any point in the season, provides good flexibility.
+ After discussion at the 2022 AGM, where it was tentatively proposed (but strongly rejected) to make the SS ‘more tarmac’, the SS remains a mixture of road, trail and mixed road/trail races.
+ Courses/races used over the last 10 years were these (showing how many needed to be completed each year; rules have altered over the years).

If a race is lost…
The rules allow for more ad hoc replacements than is allowed in the Championship. If a race is lost, we shall seek to find a replacement of similar length (if possible), preferably (but not necessarily) in Perthshire, and offer a minimum of 2 weeks of notice (and ideally more) for this. Members will be notified by email/here and on the website/FB page.
